Tips for making French toast

Vegan French toast is one of the breakfast recipes I made as a kid. This classic breakfast is fairly easy to make and does not need fancy equipment or special Ingredients. However, you need to keep a few things in mind to elevate the taste of the dish. Firstly, make sure you are making this fresh. Although I said that you can refrigerate the dish and reheat it before eating, I strongly suggest you make it fresh. French toast tends to become hard when you freeze or refrigerate it. When you reheat the French toast, it might get soggy and chewy to bite.

Keep in mind that you are cooking the toast on medium to low flame. If you try to cook the toast on high flame, it will burn and charr. When you cook the toast on a low flame, the sugar in the batter caramelises and gives out a really crisp golden outer later. However, if you cook it on high flame it might turn dark brown really quick and might give out a charred flavour and uneven caramelisation. If you want to make the original version of french toast and not the gluten-free one, you can replace the soy/almond milk with no-cream milk and corn starch with eggs.

I strongly suggest you top the French toast with maple syrup or honey. Maple syrup is fairly sweet. It can be found in your local departmental stores. If you do not have maple syrup you can always use honey. You can also top french toast with different varieties of toppings. One of my favourite non-traditional toppings to put is chocolate chips! this is a fun way to serve it to the kids. However, you can also use fresh fruits like strawberries, blueberries and bananas.

Conclusion

Vegan French toast is a French breakfast. However, because of colonisation, has spread all across the world. Many countries also enjoy this delicious breakfast with fresh fruits. It is a perfect way to start your morning. Although, it is fairly easy to make and does not involve a lot of effort it is quite delicious. Students can make this breakfast due to its really low prep time. I thoroughly enjoy having it at least twice a week.
